Jaguar announces the launch of its R Performance Academy

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Lucky buyers of a 2010 Jaguar XKR or XFR will get the chance to drive the fastest Jaguars at a race track with a topnotch driving instructor. The R Performance Academy was launched earlier in the week and will begin December 1, with a session at the Homestead Miami Speedway. The circuit stretches 2.21 miles and features 14 turns to challenge to even the most experienced racers.

A full day of driving is in store for the participants who will get to experience multiple types of driving, from maximum acceleration to braking to emergency lane changes.

There is a special autocross event and there are lessons for driving without stability and traction control to those who dare.

The academy is intended to help drivers explore the capabilities of these special automobiles and to develop the skills and techniques needed to safely experience their high-performance dynamics.

Both the XFR and XKR are powered by a supercharged V-8 engine generating 510 horsepower. The XFR is capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds while the XKR can do so in 4.6 seconds.

After the initial Homestead Miami Speedway session, the Jaguar R Performance Academy will then be hosting events at a quarterly basis at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Monticello Motor Club in Monticello, New York and the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, among others.
